As schools around the world continue to adapt to disruption, our networks in the Asia Pacific and Europe, Middle East, and Africa regions continue to look ahead to what’s next. Our strength as a community of educators is in learning, pivoting, and using the crisis to create positive, lasting change.

How can we use our assurance of learning systems to create educated, socially conscious leaders? How can we leverage our mission and vision statements to have an impact on our communities? How can the process of continuous improvement help us adjust to a new normal?

Attending the AP and EMEA Accreditation Conference is your opportunity to connect to business school leaders on unique regional issues. Explore the AACSB 2020 accreditation standards while gaining insights into trends in your region. Formulate solutions with your peers, network, and connect with experienced quality assurance managers, school leaders, and accreditation experts.

If your virtual initial accreditation visit or continuous improvement review is coming up, or you’re simply interested in virtual connections through the lens of quality assurance, you will find the ideal blend of learning and networking opportunities at this conference.

Sessions will be offered in Asian and European time zones, with speakers from both of these key regions and a variety of business school types. Session recordings will be posted on the exclusive Exchange community by Wednesday, 9 June, and will be available for 90 days.

A helpful overview of the 2020 standards and a lovely way to meet a wide range of participants from across the world and share experiences. Being virtual almost made it easier to engage and in particular post live chat questions. Well done to all involved!''
